Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray (knee) could return around midseason, according to Jonathan Jones of CBS Sports. The team is reportedly "pleased with the work ethic, rehab, and study habits" of its star quarterback as he recovers from a torn ACL suffered last season. When Murray returns, he'll be a fantasy QB1 while also elevating the stock of his teammates. For the time being, though, Arizona's outlook is bleak as Joshua Dobbs opens the season at quarterback.

After Arizona Cardinals head coach Jonathan Gannon said quarterback Kyler Murray (knee) will play when healthy, he told a local Arizona radio station on Tuesday that Murray will suit up this season. The Cardinals' quarterback tore his ACL in Week 14 against the New England Patriots and will begin the 2023 season on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list. He will miss at least the first four games of the year and remains without a set timetable. With an expected return later this season, Murray is a great fantasy quarterback stash in all formats.

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray (knee) suffered a torn ACL in December of the 2022 season and is beginning the 2023 campaign on the PUP (Physically Unable To Perform) list. There's been speculation that the Cardinals will hold him out of games even when he does return to full health, but Kyle Odegard reports the franchise will play him when he's cleared. Murray was recently named a team captain for 2023 and reportedly has full support from the new coaching staff and front office in Arizona. Murray still has no targeted return date, and it remains to be seen if the Cardinals will still be interested in starting him if the team has a poor record when he's fully healed. For fantasy football, he's an intriguing bench stash for late-season upside.

The Arizona Cardinals have a legitimate business reason for keeping quarterback Kyler Murray (knee) off the field for the entire 2023 season. Murray has millions in injury guarantees that will become fully guaranteed in the not-too-distant future. If a player can't pass a physical on the date the guarantees convert, the team cannot avoid the financial commitment. If Arizona is contemplating a future without Murray, it makes good business sense to keep him on the Physically Unable to Perform list the entire season. A trade after 2023 would shift much of Murray's money to a new team, but they might not want to take on nearly $67 million fully guaranteed. It's clear the Cardinals are tanking, and they are going into the start of the regular season with either Joshua Dobbs or rookie Clayton Tune as their starting quarterback.

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray (knee) will not be activated off the PUP (Physically Unable to Perform) list at the start of the 2023 regular season. Since Murray will remain on the PUP list, he is not eligible to play during the team's first four games of the season. This is not a surprise after Murray suffered a torn ACL in Week 12 against the New England Patriots last season, but now it's official. The former No. 1 overall pick still has no timetable to return. He could return as soon as Week 5 or even miss the entire regular season. All options are on the table as Arizona goes through a rebuilding year.
